Oh, FFS. ***Another*** member of Skepchick was inappropriately propositioned for sex after appearing as a speaker at a conference. In this case, a couple of relative strangers flipped her a card with their number and a picture of their naked bodies. But that’s not the worst part, from my point of view.
No, the worst part is that by the time I read this post, the comment thread was already a mile long… and I was immediately saying to myself “How long is this thread going to go on before somebody starts trying to justify it?” And, you know… I hate being right.
I’m not even gonna go into detail here, but the answer is “about a third of the way down the page.” And the comment in question, by donboc, was: “I’m sure I’m going to get a sh!tstorm for writing this, but what was so upsetting about the experience?” Then it gets worse.
This comes after a persistent concern troll has been plaguing the Atheist Experience’s inbox all day, telling us not to post anything about feminism anymore because that belongs on a separate blog, and it upsets people.
Fair warning: I’m in a mood to ban commenters. Please make me.
